Why is Preventative Care so Important?

Why Preventative Dental Care? 

Life is busy and many of us often forget to schedule regular dental visits but it's important to maintain routine check-ups because preventative care is cheaper, less painful and more effective.

What is it? 

Preventative care includes things like regular check-ups, cleanings, and fluoride treatments. These services help to remove plaque and tartar from teeth, prevent cavities, and keep gums healthy. Emergency dental care, on the other hand, is usually needed to treat problems that have already developed, such as a toothache, infection, or gum disease. These problems can be more expensive to treat, and often times, more painful.

In addition, preventative dental care can help to prevent more serious problems from developing down the road. For example, if a cavity is not treated, it can eventually lead to a toothache, infection, or even tooth loss. Emergency dental care can help to treat these problems, but it cannot prevent them from happening in the first place.
